Shaping services for our growing population

Redbridge is changing, fast! Already one of the fastest growing authorities in the country, our population is set to grow significantly over the next 10 years as the arrival of Crossrail drives unprecedented levels of investment into the Borough. We’re committed to harnessing the benefit of that investment to secure better outcomes for our residents, businesses and visitors and are transforming how we deliver our services to respond to changing local needs, support our regeneration programme and modernise our estate.

Under this programme we are seeking to deliver a new Civic Hub in Ilford featuring Council offices, a library and theatre together with workspace, sports/leisure and education facilities, alongside five Community Hubs providing libraries, services for adults and children and community facilities in strategic locations across the Borough. The post holder will lead the effort to develop this programme from our initial concept through to full business case; brokering the discussions across the Council, community and with partners/stakeholders to establish a new model of local service delivery, define our physical requirements and coordinate the effort to secure timely delivery.

Discussions on the first Community Hub are well advanced with a planning application expected within the next 12 months. To be successful in this post, you will need to be confident acting in a strategic role, have experience of leading within a complex organisation and possess a strong ambition to deliver services differently; putting residents at the heart of decision making.

For further information or for a confidential discussion please contact Matthew Essex, Operational Director Regeneration, Property & Planning by email on matthew.essex@redbridge.gov.uk or via phone on 07966 225096.

Closing date: 28 June 2019.
